#1 New York Times bestselling author Nora Roberts presents Legacy, a new novel of a mother and a daughter, of ambition and romance, and of a traumatic past reawakened by a terrifying threat…

Adrian Rizzo was seven when she met her father for the first time. That was the day he nearly killed her—before her mother, Lina, stepped in.

Soon after, Adrian was dropped off at her grandparents’ house in Maryland, where she spent a long summer drinking lemonade, playing with dogs, making a new best friend—and developing the stirrings of a crush on her friend’s ten-year-old brother. Lina, meanwhile, traveled the country promoting her fitness brand and turning it into a billion-dollar business. There was no point in dwelling on the past.

A decade later, Adrian has created her own line of yoga and workout videos, following in Lina’s footsteps but intent on maintaining creative control. And she’s just as cool-headed and ambitious as her mother. They aren’t close, but they’re cordial—as long as neither crosses the other.

But while Lina dismisses the death threats that Adrian starts getting as a routine part of her daughter’s growing celebrity, Adrian can’t help but find the vicious rhymes unsettling. Year after year, they keep arriving—the postmarks changing, but the menacing tone the same. They continue after she returns to Maryland and becomes reacquainted with Raylan, her childhood crush, all grown up and as gorgeously green-eyed as ever. Sometimes it even seems like the terrifying messages are indeed routine, like nothing will come of them. Until the murders start, and the escalation begins…


  • Way too long…but good story

    By Chilequile
    Typical Nora Roberts. Extended families and lots of drama. Good storyline but way too much excruciating minutiae of daily routines that you must just page through. It finally all came together towards the end. All and all a feel-good read with a happy ending
  • When does the next book come out?!

    By ReaderRogers
    I wasn’t sure about starting so young at first, but then I realized I had time to fall in love with the characters and their families. Loved it!

    Enjoyable characters, and a bit of love. The dramatic violence was predictable, but it was just as I thought it would be in the end. Nice to see strong female characters, I would recommend.

    The underlying summary of this reading is probably profound
  • Magical and unique

    By lydiajmartin
    A rare 5 on a scale of 1-5.
  • Becoming redundant

    By thistaken?
    I usually love Nora Roberts, but a certain aspect of her writing is becoming repetitive. I am not sure if I have a good way to describe it, but it goes something like this: Tommy had a short fuse but it came with a soft heart. It all balanced out in the end. It just feels like she always yin and yangs the main characters and other’s understanding of them. Whoever is in perspective will find something annoying then balance it with recognition of other traits. It’s becoming predictable drivel and lazy writing. Irritating enough I wrote an entire review about it. The last 7 or so books have had this aspect. Like she is reading copious amounts of one author and subconsciously emulating their tone.
  • Pretty good read

    As always a wonderful story! She has you into the story feeling everything. The characters are real and you want the story to continue because you know these people.
